The Jacket I'm Loving for Fall!

Fall is here and it's time to stock up on some key fall essentials. The one item I’ve been craving, for my fall wardrobe, is a plaid blazer. I’ve been trying to up my jacket game for awhile. Blazers and jackets are one of those items in my wardrobe I always forget about. I’m always searching for a cute top or a great pair of jeans, although I’ve found with jackets and blazers I always overlook them. That is until I come across a great piece I have to have like my new favorite plaid blazer from H&M. I’ve been in search of an inexpensive one ever since I saw one during the Nordstrom Sale that was a little out of my price range.
The great price point isn’t the only thing I love about this jacket. I really love the way the jacket fits. It's a longer length and not too fitted, it gives a more relaxed vibe while also making me look put together. I also love how its made of a jersey material so it's easy to move in and not so constricting. When you're chasing after an 8 month old being able to move in a garment is important. Lastly, what I love about my purchase is its versatility in my wardrobe. Like many of my great pieces, this jacket can be dressed up for a night out or dressed down for work. In today’s blog I’ll be sharing the three ways I’ve styled it with my current wardrobe in hopes that it inspires your jacket game as well and how you style it!

Look One: Chic Merchandiser Look
For those of you who follow me you know for my day job I’m a visual merchandiser. A lot of what my job entails is early mornings, heavy lifting, and a lot of running around. When getting dressed in the morning I need it to be easy, cute, and functional. I’m always looking for fun ways to dress up a basic tee and what better way than my new plaid jacket! I paired it with a statement necklace and some colorful flats to create a perfect yet functional look for work!
Jacket: H&M Jeans: Old Navy Statement Necklace: Forever 21 Flats: Target

Look Two: Rock n’ Roller Look
This look is perfect for a girls night out or a fun date night. I took another basic tee and paired it with a flirty skirt, black booties, and of course a killer statement necklace. To create and easy look for when your ready to party!
Tee: Emily Roggenburk Skirt: Asos Booties: Old Navy

Look Three: Layered in Lace Look
Okay, so by now you noticed a pattern, black is one of my fav colors. I apologize for the absence of color in my style choices, but this blazer can easily be paired with a great red dress or even a soft purple for a more feminine look. Although, nothing beats an LBD and this lace number is one of my favorites and I do actually own the same one in navy (see I wear color!) I thought it paired perfectly with the plaid jacket giving the lace a more menswear laid back vibe perfect for after work drinks or a semi formal event you may be attending!
Dress: Amazon
*dress comes in other colors, including Red!!
